Glow: Empowering Women in an Era of Sexual Harassment

In a land of accusations, truth-blasting, and something I like to call “false sorrying,” the female community needed something to feel strengthened by. Women needed a message that said, “Hey, we are women, we are strong, and we will not be ‘bullied into submission.’” Well, that messaged arrived, and it is plastered in glitter, hairspray and aerobic wedgies. Please welcome the greatest female empowerment story to hit Netflix since Orange is the New Black, Glow: a tale of of misfit females in the ‘80s who find their calling in wrestling. Glow stars Community’s Alison Brie, Nurse Jackie’s Betty Gilpin, and Comedian

‘Drunk History’: Derek Waters Previews Season 5 and Acknowledges the Insanity of Getting Oscar-Winning Guest Stars

‘Drunk History’: Derek Waters Previews Season 5 and Acknowledges the Insanity of Getting Oscar-Winning Guest Stars
Ten years after the invention of the “Drunk History” format, comedian Derek Waters is reconsidering how to describe the performers who get wasted, then narrate their take on a pivotal moment in history. “I want to start calling them ‘storytellers,'” he said. “It sounds more important. I think ‘narrator’ sounds like a voiceover actor.”

Indeed, the term “narrator” doesn’t quite do justice to what intoxicated celebrities bring to the series, which returned to television Tuesday night after nearly 13 months off the air.

Tuesday’s “Drunk History Christmas Special” will be followed by the show’s full return on January 23. It’s been a long time since new “Drunk History” episodes premiered, something Waters (who co-created the show with Jeremy Konner) acknowledged. “If I was a fan, I’m thinking the show’s over,” he said. “‘I thought you were dead.’ But that’s better like that than people going,

‘The Post’: Steven Spielberg’s ‘Favorite Cast’ Has Received At Least 58 Emmy Nominations
Sometimes, even Steven Spielberg has trouble assembling his dream cast. But that wasn’t the case with his latest film, the historical drama “The Post.” At a Q&A on Monday night hosted by the Directors Guild of America in Los Angeles, Spielberg told the audience that he’d been able to get every single one of his first choices. No small feat, considering that the turnaround time on the movie clocked in at just nine months, dating from Spielberg’s first acceptance of the script to its first November screenings.

“So often when I make a movie, I have my first choices, and I don’t always get my first choices sometimes due to availability or sometimes actors don’t like the script enough to say yes to me or to anybody,” he said. “But everybody I wanted in the movie, they were available and they all said yes.

Dan Harmon has been having talks about a Community movie

Community managed to tick off the first part of its slogan “six seasons and a movie”, reaching its sixth season before coming to an end in 2015, and speaking to The Wrap, creator Dan Harmon has revealed that he still has plans for a feature film, and has been speaking to the Russo brothers (Avengers: Infinity War) and Justin Lin (Fast & Furious) about that very possibility.

“I keep having conversations with the kinds of people that could make it happen,” said Harmon. “The Russo brothers moved from ‘Community to becoming industry shapers. So did one of our most popular directors, Justin Lin, who directed the first paintball episode. [Lin] in particular has always been jazzed about the idea of doing a Community movie. I hope I’m not talking out of school by saying that. I’ll get together with him every once in a while, or we’ll have dinner, and

Dan Harmon Says “Community” Movie is Still Happening

Community fans might remember the slogan “six seasons and a movie,” which was used as a rallying cry to save the series after it had been cancelled by NBC. A number of relevant parties such as Netflix and Hulu turned down the idea, but in the end, Community managed to get a sixth season of 13 episodes when Yahoo! decided to order it for Yahoo! Screen. However, it was clear that Season 6 would be the last season at an early point in the production process for the simple reason that the cast members’ contracts were coming to a close,

‘Community’ Movie is Still Happening, Dan Harmon Promises
The final episode of Dan Harmon‘s brilliant sitcom Community aired on Yahoo Screen – an entertainment service that doesn’t exist anymore – back in 2015. The show sort of limped across the finish line as it lost key cast members in the lead-up to its finale, and though the series ended with a whimper, the first few seasons are some of the […]

Top TV industry executives and celebrities who attended the dinner gala, hosted by the Friends of Saban Community Clinic, the Clinic’s fundraising arm, raised $4.6 million for its healthcare services. Media mogul and philanthropist Haim Saban and his wife, author and artist Cheryl Saban, matched that amount — bringing the fundraising total to $9.2 million!

“The work of the Clinic is critically important. We are truly inspired [by the stories we heard tonight] and are honored to do our part,” said Cheryl Saban.

Community: talks ongoing about a movie

Simon Brew Nov 22, 2017

Dan Harmon admits that he keeps having chats about bringing Community to the movies...

The TV show Community ultimately made it to its promised six seasons, but to date, hasn’t quite the movie bit of its characters’ mantra nailed down. However, the show’s creator, Dan Harmon, has revealed that hope isn’t lost, in a new interview with The Wrap.

“I keep having conversations with the kinds of people that could make it happen”, Harmon said. “The Russo brothers moved from Community to becoming industry shapers. So did one of our most popular directors, Justin Lin, who directed the first paintball episode”.

The Russo brothers, of course, have helmed two Captain America movies for Marvel since, and are hard at work on Avengers: Infinity War at the moment. Justin Lin directed four Fast & Furious movies, and Star Trek Beyond.

Dan Harmon on ‘Community’ Movie: Justin Lin and I Are ‘Trying’ to Make It Happen
Will “Community” fans’ long-held dream of “six seasons and a movie” finally come to fruition? Dan Harmon, who created the heralded comedy series that signed off in June 2015 after Season 6, told TheWrap that the show’s long-hoped-for feature film may still happen. Harmon’s optimism remains alive due in part to a number of individuals who worked on the show and now hold considerable clout in Hollywood. This includes “Community” executive producers Joe and Anthony Russo, who directed the show’s pilot before helming such high-profile movies as “Captain America: Civil War” and the upcoming “Avengers: Infinity War.”

‘HarmonQuest’ Season 2 Finale Reveals the Fate of Fondue, Dan Harmon’s Cowardly Half-Orc

One of the more brilliant ideas to bear the name of Dan Harmon isn’t an animated comedy series like the fan-favorite Rick and Morty or a live-action cult classic like Community, but a blend of both approaches with a dash of D&D-esque flavoring thrown in. This is HarmonQuest. As Harmon himself self-deprecatingly admits at the beginning of every episode, he’s not the star of the show; that honor falls to dungeon master and co-creator Spencer Crittenden, who literally holds the fate of the role-playing game’s characters in his dice-…
